This book costs $125 USD (12,500 nrs) and it is considered to be the most comprehensive and authoritative evidence-based procedure manual for ICU in print. The Library at Lalitpur Nursing Campus in Sanepa now has it in the reference section (not for checkout!). It is available to any nurse who wishes to learn from it. You do not need to be a student at LNC to use this resource. If you are going there, call 975 112 1005 to confirm that the library is open.

This book will join the set of American Heart Association books related to BLS, ACLS, PALS, STEMI, and airway now also at LNC.

Here are the books that LNC now owns. Most are from the American Heart Association.  I will also give them the complete set of materials form the pen drive I usually share at sessions of the CCNEPal class Here are the books that LNC now…

I’m so honored and humbled to be an ambassador this year…and I now have the perfect excuse to go tweet-crazy during the conference (you have been warned).

Because of #HIMSS15 I thought it would be appropriate to theme the next #hcldr tweetchat on the…

The four definitions of interoperability


The four definitions of interoperability #GenomicsTeam @deerwalkinc uknow?

Healthcare Interoperability

Interoperability is one of those terms that everybody thinks they understand.  When you press people for a definition you usually get a shuffling of the feet and a blank look.  “Well,  it’s when things talk to each other, right?”

This isn’t actually an unreasonable response because there are at least four competing definitions for the term in the modern healthcare arena and they are all subtly related.   Today we’re going to take a look at definitions from IEEE, HIMSS, HL7  and ONC.  As  you’ll see, the water is somewhat murky.

Our discussion starts with the IEEE Standard Computer Dictionary: A Compilation of IEEE Standard Computer Glossaries (New York, NY: 1990) where interoperability is defined as;

The ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. See IEEE Standard Computer Dictionary: A Compilation of IEEE Standard Computer Glossaries (New York, NY:…
